DSV Park in Pomona, Kempton Park in South Africa’s Gauteng province, was designed as a strategic, multi-disciplined logistics hub with the full scope of the project equal to roughly 55 rugby fields.
Each of the functional units became record-breaking projects for DSV and necessitated a joint project team working in close partnership. The team included Sika, DG Consulting and WBHO, each bringing their respective skills and expertise to ensure the success of the project.
• The logistics warehouse at 80 000m² is three times the size of any other project this year.
• The crossdocking facility at 32 000m² is double the size of any previous facility constructed.
• Total site concrete hardstands of 130 000m² and an office block at an additional 10 000m² is one of the larges projects to date.
Durable flooring of vital importance
During the flooring phase, a durable dry shake surface hardener was specified, with SikaFloor®-3 QuartzTop being the ultimate product owing to its successes and impressive track record.
A mineral dry shake floor hardener, SikaFloor®-3 QuartzTop is a one-part, pre blended (coloured to spec) hardener for concrete comprising cement, specially selected quartz mineral aggregates and admixtures. Application was done at 5kg per m² and was then power floated, followed by a 14-day wet curing.
